Potential Tropical Cyclone 14 10 pm path

MOBILE, Ala. -- The National Hurricane Center at 10 p.m. on Saturday continued issuing advisories on a disturbance that potentially will become Tropical Cyclone Fourteen.

If it eventually becomes a named storm, it would be Michael. 

Currently, the system is located in the Caribbean. It has winds of 30 mph and is moving northward at 7 mph. We expect it to continue strengthening through the weekend. 

There is still a lot of uncertainty with this system. It is too early to know how strong it will be and where exactly it will make landfall. 

We expect it to reach the Gulf by Monday morning and begin to strengthen as it moves northward. Regardless of development, we are looking for a high risk of rip currents to begin on Monday. Red flags will be flying, so stay out of the water.

A potential tropical cyclone means that a tropical cyclone has not yet formed but is expected to soon. This allows the National Hurricane Center to issue watches and warnings as well as a forecast track for those possibly in the path of the storm.
